Market dynamism …. Layman’s thoughts


The modern economics advises us to set markets free of regulatory mechanisms so that the underlying market forces shall naturally put balances on demand, supply and prices. The argument is correct in a way that naturally evolving capacities would be stronger, development oriented and long living. But layman’s suspicion is that, what would happen if governments withdraw all controls over the commodity prices and certain elements in the industry, on the other hand, try to put prices at some fictitious heights and push it further from there? There are chances for it to happen if someone or some group in the supply chain is/are aggressive in getting undue profit out of business – or want to see the market condition in a way pre-set by them. If it happens, then again, the natural market dynamism shall be upset as in the case of regulatory systems - perhaps in a manner worse than the regulatory systems.

The above anxiety is there in the minds of the layman all over the world. We cannot neglect these much massive anxiety as baseless. Because ‘anxiety’ itself is a mechanism engaged by the nature to balance something else to ensure a congenial environment for living. Therefore it has to be addressed properly. What we can do to ensure that market dynamism is not upset arbitrarily by some elements from the market itself?

Additional Skill Acquisition Programme (ASAP), Kerala

Higher Education, General Education and Local Self Government Departments of Kerala State Government in India have jointly launched an Additional Skill Acquisition Programme (ASAP) as part of State Skill Development Programme to enhance the employability of students passing out of Higher Secondary Schools (+2) as well as Arts and Science Colleges in the state.
Historically Kerala has been a prominent supplier of skilled human resource to the rest of the world. But now, in accordance with the requirements of the fast changing world, though Kerala has an amazing pool of Human Resource, the overall employability is calculated below twenty five percent, the ASAP project document says.
 Additional Skill Acquisition Programme has been conceived as an effective remedy for this situation. The whole idea is that the students will be given skill training, in addition to their regular academic programme/curriculum, in the crucial sectors as being demanded by the Industry. These skill training w…
